Architecture of Trees Hike Saturday, March 2nd, 2:30 - 4:30 PM with Bill Logan, author, arborist and Huyck Preserve Board Member
All the trillions of trees in the world grow in only about two dozen forms. Each tree expresses its basic form and then repeats it throughout its long life. The tree can even be reborn in old age by repeating its first shape. Learn about tree architecture with Bill Logan, author of DIRT, OAK, AIR and the about-to-be-released SPROUT LANDS. The event will conclude with an easy hike to see how the Preserve trees are expressing themselves. Please wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear. Suggested donation: $5 non-members, members and children under 12 free REGISTRATION FULL

Then, the Prowl will venture outdoors, where we will keep our eyes and ears open in search of owls in the wild. Bring headlamps or flashlights if you'd like (red lights preferred). All ages are welcome! Suggested donation: $5 non-members, members and children under 12 free REGISTRATION FULL

Charlotte Malmborg of the New York State Hemlock Initiative at Cornell University will begin with an indoor presentation on the risks eastern forests face from the invasive Hemlock Woolly Adelgid and the role that citizen scientists can play in their protection. We will then take an easy hike around Lincoln Pond to assess the health of the hemlocks in our forests and talk about the incredibly important role that hemlocks play in natural ecosystems. This is a free event and suitable for land stewards of all ages. Registration is not required but is helpful in our planning.
